    An Original Design

    I just finished this quilt that I'm calling "Amish Block Party". It is an original design. Thanks for looking!

    Wonderful quilt! I'm sure that is a pattern many people would like to try.

    Clever design, and clever designer! Nice job. Great use of narrow strips. Thanks for posting your eye-candy design.

    Did you piece it with Y-seams?

    Great job, it's a fantastic design. Did you piece the stripes or did you use a striped fabric? The colours are just grogeous
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    I love the colours! And your design is so inventive, and crisp - you really have made a hybrid of Amish and modern styles.

    I love it, totally awesome. Isn't it great when you design something yourself. I've been trying to do that for awhile also. Great job!!

    Very nice!! Lovely designs and the colors suit it to a T. Well done!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
